Gastrointestinal tuberculosis, the great simulator. From inflammatory disease to a tumor

742

María del Mar Díaz Alcázar, Alicia Martín-Lagos Maldonado, Eloísa Cervilla Sáez de Tejada,

A 52-year-old Senegalese male presented due to abdominal pain and fever, with findings suggestive of a stenosing tumor of the right colon. Biopsies during colonoscopy were compatible with adenocarcinoma and infiltration into neighboring organs was observed during the surgery. New biopsies were taken that did not show dysplasia but granulomatous foci that were suggestive of a non-filiated infection. Thus, tuberculosis was ruled out.
